Talk about bringing a trilogy full circle. Variety is reporting that director Christopher Nolan has brought back Liam Neeson for The Dark Knight Rises. While Warner Bros. had no comment on the casting, Variety is speculating that Neeson will be reprising the villainous role of Ra’s al Ghul and has apparently already filmed a scene in London where the movie is currently shooting.
Earlier last month, cryptic photos popped up on various websites of what appeared to be The Lazarus Pit, commonly used by Ghul for their restorative powers. Josh Pence was cast as someone who is believed to be a young Ra’s al Ghul while fanboy speculation pegs Marion Cotillard’s character as Sarah Essen, which could be revealed as a cover for Talia al Ghul, who figured prominently in the comics.
Neeson has been on fire since he appeared in Nolan’s first Batman movie, Batman Begins. Since then, Neeson has starred in action thrillers Taken and Unknown, the 3D-epic Clash of the Titans and Joe Carnahan’s big screen adaptation of The A-Team. The actor is also slated to appear in a Titans sequel as well as the film adaptation of the board game Battleship next year.
So what do you think of Neeson returning as part of this cast?
